BLACK / WHITE (with a touch of color)
From Black and white to every shade of in-between gray... our call for submissions looks for all types of black and white artwork and challenges you, the artist, to convey your message in a world with minimal color.
When artwork showcases black, white and shades of gray, viewers are drawn to focus on the art piece, and the details of how the artist interprets an image in the absence of color. From subtle shades of grays to broad and bold strokes of black ink or paint, we are seeking all types of work from conceptual to realistic.
Artwork must contain 75% - 100% shades of black / white. It’s a favorite among artists to challenge their creativity.
Any subject matter and any media are acceptable. Submitted work should showcase a variety of visual art mediums, subjects, and techniques by a wide range of creative voices (i.e. a variety of ethnic, cultural, and gender representation) while always expressing a high standard of artistic excellence.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Cloudfolios?
Cloudfolios is a platform we use to publish our art calls. Artists submitting their work for consideration will be doing so through the Cloudfolios system.
How and when will I know if I've been accepted?
Every artist who submitted their work for consideration will be notified by email. Once the work is finalized, an email is sent to the artists automatically by the Cloudfolios system (the same system the artist used to submit). This email will let the artists know which works were accepted and which works were rejected. If you do not receive an email within a couple of days, please double check your spam folder.
What happens and or what do I do after I am accepted?
Accepted artists can expect a follow-up email directly from the gallery congratulating them on their acceptance as well as very detailed instructions with their exhibiting details.
How and when do I submit my biography and conceptual statements?
Artists will be given detailed instructions through their exhibiting details on how to submit their statements. This requirement only applies to artists who are accepted.
Why is installation, audio, and video art not allowed?
We apologize for this exclusion. Our gallery at this time is not equipped to exhibit these particular mediums of art. We hope to change this in the future.
If I submitted my work and I forgot to include other work, can my submission/application be reopened and can I add it?
Yes, you may. Please email us at: FiveDeucesGalleria@gmail.com
If my work was entirely rejected, can I inquire to know why?
